Casa Natale Benito Mussolini - Predappio

It's a modest building, made of large blocks of local stone, called "SPUNGONE". Benito Mussolini was born here on July 29, 1883, in a room on the upper floor. His father Alessandro worked as a blacksmith on the ground floor. The house has recently been restored and it's now used as a public exhibition center, where historical and artistic works are shown.

Who was Benito, before it became Mussolini? What was he like when as a boy? What inspired him? How was he connected to his homeland Romagna and to socialism?

From the 29th of September 2013 an unprecedented historical exhibition has been inaugurated, featuring over 200 documents from private collections or State Archives. Letters, postcards, photographs, newspaper articles, booklets, portraits and much more: all this sketches out a unique historical and documentary path never presented before, either in Italy or abroad.
